Suppose you are in low temperate regions and you are returning to your home after shopping and your room-heater is placed in a room and connected to the Mi Smart Socket. And you want a warm room when you reach home. So, what you need to do is? You have to set the device to switch on using your phone via the MIJIA app. It requires internet connectivity on your smartphone.
That means you can also control the device from anywhere you are as long as there is an internet connection. You can also set the timer via the MIJIA app.
The Smart Socket supports for BC1.2 protocol, remote control, timer switch, power statistics and other functions. To manufacture a high-temperature resistant material is used. There is also a built-in temperature sensor which alerts you if the socket becomes too hot because of heavy load. There is also “automatically cut off function” if the temperature becomes too high.
